CATCH Facilitators and Resident Liaisons
- CATCH facilitators promote community pediatrics and support pediatricians who engage with their community to improve child health by helping them with CATCH grant proposal development and project implementation.
- Each AAP Chapter has at least one Chapter CATCH Facilitator, and each District has a District CATCH Facilitator and a Resident CATCH Liaison. Two National Resident CATCH Liaisons serve as a resource for the District Resident Liaisons.
